That is what i wanted to do but i just can't see that area the way i sit and without an adjustable wheel. once i practice and get better at fiberglass i'm going to attempt to glass in a pod in each corner of the gauge bezel.

Once you get better at fiberglass you can attempt to fiberglass a guage into my bezel.
That's not a double entendre... I just meant if it turns out good I'd pay you money to fiberglass mine

Hey honhon I think I might have gotten the idea from you for mine. Have you ever posted a pic up of it. I know I got it from someone.

Okay, I WANT this. Someone make a couple of these and sell them. Just have the buyer send you there stock one and make another out of it, almost an endless supply that way.
